Enjoy the Read and Write the Authors!
So because I'm not crazy enough from all the stories and all the characters I already have going currently, one of my very oldest stories, started way back in 1987 originally is finally ready to post and has been. This is another fantasy setting story, which is the main reason it took so long to get it ready to post. There are completely made up by me words in this story so a bootbox really won't help much. Sorry about that. Context should help you figure out meaning at least.
Keep Calm and Keep Reading!
A new chapter of Lagniappe is now available. This chapter does include a scene that is mildly traumatic to the main character, so it may not be suitable for all readers. My apologies for this if you are one of those people, but I assure the scene is not violent nor does it last nor will it be repeated in this story. Hopefully you can still enjoy the chapter and the story.

Until next time,
While you are waiting for the next chapter of Voyagers which I hear is something else; I highly recommend reading the 'appendices' created by Zarek Dragon. They contain a lot of background and other information that will enhance your reading of the story.
So check out the SS Sooloo ~ Explorer Class Ship Specs, the Duty Roster, the Uniforms, and the Galactipedia. There is a wealth of information for you to peruse, including images of some of the crew, uniforms, and some background scientific information as well.
Zarek Dragon has done an awesome job putting all of this material together for your enlightenment.
I also want to personally thank the authors of Voyagers; DouglassDD, True Fan, and Zarek Dragon, for allowing me to play in their playground. [Names are in alphabetical order] They are a great group of authors to work with!
A new chapter of Expanding Horizons is now live and ready for your reading pleasure. I hope you enjoy it as much as the boys in it enjoy their cookies. I know this story hasn't been updated in a while, so feel free to go back and re-read if you need to do so. Be aware that there will be more updates to my writing soon.
Laissez les bon temps roullez!

I'm not going to drag this out for too long, as I'm having a few problems with power outages on my end. Small ones, nothing major. And my laptop battery keeps working, but my router and internet connection vanishes on me, which means lost work and wasted time. Luckily, we only got lightly 'brushed' by the effects of Hurricane Florence, but it still makes for a messy weekend. Best of wishes to our Shackers in Florida and the Carolinas who had a much more severe experience with the storm. Be safe!
Yesterday was September 15th! And, as you know, the 15th of every month brings you a brand new issue of the Shack's online magazine, 'Imagine'! I certainly hope you guys enjoyed the new additions, articles, and stories, for the month of September! (We're getting better at this! Hehehe!) So jump in whenever you like, and feel free to let me know what you think at Comicality@webtv.net when you get an opportunity! All of the usual suspects are included in this issue, including a fabulous new series by this month's featured author, Lindon Weztser called, "Lincoln, The Family I Never Expected"! Followed by an interview that goes in depth into the story's theme and creation, and what you guys can look forward to next! Welcome to the Imagine family, Lindon!
Also, brand new chapters of "The Seashell", "Predators: 9-14-9x", and "Brandon Smiling"! (I made a mistake with the 'Brandon' chapter, but I will get that fixed up as soon as possible! But if you haven't read the series yet, use this time to catch up! Hehehe, it'll be worth it!) Coming up next will be our special 'Halloween Issue', which I'm really excited about! Some people go crazy for Valentine's Day, others for Christmas...but me? I'm a Halloween junkie! All the way! So turn the lights out on October 15th, and look for more Imagine craziness to come!
As ALWAYS...Imagine Magazine is looking for more submissions, short stories, series, articles about everything to LGBT youth, to movies and music, to book reviews, or anything that you can offer to help us out with the effort! We'd LOVE to have ya jump on board! So drop me an email and let me know what you've got to show me! Cool? ((Hugz)) In advance!
Also, this month's short Daydream story, "We're Not Telling", has just been posted tonight as well! So definitely give it a look, and leave a comment if you can! Expect a new short story of young love, infatuation, and experimentation, with every monthly issue! And huge thanks for the compliments and feedback that you guys have given me so far! Love you lots for it!
Alright, I'm going to get out of here before the lights blink out on me again! Hehehe! But take care! I love you all! And it's good to be back in touch! Seezya soon!
